Resources for finding your SAP specialty

The aforementioned scenarios are but a few of the career areas in SAP that you may want to pursue. Some areas will inevitably fade into the sunset, while others will continue to grow and prosper. There's no crystal ball that can tell you with certainty which technology will go where, but you can increase the odds of success in your chosen field by matching your career path to your skill set and/or area of highest interest. Chasing the latest "hot" technology when you have little real interest is rarely a good idea -- odds are you'll burn out, or best case scenario, you get stuck in a job that bores you to tears.
